We're local and we love it

If you didn’t know us it would be easy to mistake Show TV for a large faceless corporation, sitting in a big concrete office overseas, snarling at interns and lying in bathtubs of money. 

Although, like most people, we don’t hate the idea of bathing in money, these assumptions couldn’t be further from the truth! And with our most common misconception being “this is just another offshore company” nah mate.

As an Australian born and bred company, Show TV is a small group of people who not only work together, but treat each other like family, in fact, like a lot of people this side of the world, some of us really are family!

Being local through and through is something we are incredibly proud of but one thing we don’t have in common with our much loved icon, the Kangaroo, is that we can fly! Here at Show TV we dream big, take chances and put our heart and soul into the products we sell and content we produce.

While you might have seen us at live events, on TV, or on social media before, we are not your average company. Show TV is actually a small, locally owned business operating out of Melbourne, Australia. For over 10 years, we have focused our efforts on traveling around Australia, demonstrating our products at live events such as markets, home shows, expos and more!

For many wonderful years week in and week out we have been on the move up and down the country face to face with our awesome customers, demonstrating our leading edge products at events and shows. It’s a very unique way to connect with our customers and we have always loved the personal touch it brings to our company. We always say “everything we sell, we use” and if you’ve ever seen us pitch our products at an event you will know that to be the truth! But then in 2020 suddenly everything changed….

An unbelievable global event shook the world, something that no one saw coming, and no one knew how to fix, and so Australia and the rest of the world shut down… One thing we really pride ourselves on at Show TV is resilience and the ability to adapt and overcome, and so once the news hit that a lockdown due to Covid-19 was imminent, our small team gathered in our boardroom and made a plan. We took one last glance at each other around the table, accepting the grim reality that this may be the last time we all sit in this room together, then strapped our gumboots on and got to work. We loaded our vehicles up with every single Show TV product we had, locked our front doors, and did not reemerge for months.

We knew if we didn’t have events to demonstrate our products at, or even the ability to go outside, one thing we did still have was a talented bunch of people who truly care about Show TV and have years of experience demonstrating products and showing people how things work. And of course, we had the internet!

And so, delving into a world unknown to us, we began to create videos, tutorials and articles for our online social platforms. Our team worked tirelessly to create engaging content as children ran in and out of our videos, partners interrupted us and pets decided to make special guest appearances. Throughout the chaos, online audiences from across the nation began to tune into our videos. We’d found a way to connect with our fellow Aussies and our efforts to stay afloat during the most challenging time in Show TV history worked!

We are now around the boardroom once again, and our small family is beginning to grow. Thanks to the efforts from our fellow Aussies in combating the virus, we are now able to  continue with our much loved live events, as well as our new venture into the online world. We are refocusing, rebuilding and creating something that we like to call ‘Social Shopping’.

As we grow, we want to take you with us, so stay tuned for more exciting news and updates as we transform Australia with leading edge products, friendly local service and of course, our good old Aussie sense of humour!

Our mission

It’s Sunday afternoon and you’re lying on the couch at home thinking about that awesome new product you have wanted for ages. Taking a chance you pick your phone up and google the product, unbelievably you find it available online! Checking through the specifications and picking the colour you want, you mentally arrange the new product in your home as the checkout loads. Your excitement levels are at an all time high as you prepare to enter your card details, when suddenly you notice a message that stops you in your tracks. ‘This product will be shipped from the US and is charged in US dollars, please allow at least 4 weeks shipping time.’ and just like that your hopes and dreams evaporate right in front of your eyes. You don’t want to wait 4 weeks for your product to arrive, you don’t want to pay in a foreign currency with how many extra sneaky charges on top, and you certainly don’t want to give your money to a company halfway around the world with no guarantee your product will even show up! Would you even be able to talk to a real person if you needed something?! With sadness and despair you exit the screen and lie looking up at the ceiling.  

“What should I do?” You think to yourself. “I want this product, I need this product… But there is nowhere in Australia that I can get it from.”

All of a sudden, a bellowing voice fills your head “SHOW TV…” it echoes throughout your mind.

Confused, you pick up your phone once more and google ‘Show TV’. Low and behold, a website pops up in front of you. Intrigued, you scroll through the website and you can’t believe your eyes.

Product after product appears in front of you. Products that you need. Products that you want. Products that you wish you had!

As you scroll down the page, you discover that Show TV is based in Melbourne and is an Australian company that has been around for over 10 years, selling products throughout the whole of Australia at home shows, events, television and now through many social channels!

This new world is exciting, but almost too good to be true. Delving further into your search you realise that they dispatch their orders the same day if you order before 12pm!

Frantically, you look at your watch.

“11.30” you mutter to yourself, trying to calculate how many products you can buy before the clock strikes 12 pm.

‘Finally’ you think to yourself, you’ve found a safe haven, the place you've always been looking for.

Remembering that Show TV not only has an amazing website to service the whole of Australia, but that they also travel all over the country demonstrating their ground breaking products, you click over to the ‘About Us’ tab on the website and find a link to ‘Live Shows’. Here you find an itinerary of all the upcoming events Show TV will be physically attending, there’s sometimes even two or three shows a week! ‘How do they do it?’ you think to yourself as you shake your head in disbelief. The idea of being able to go to a show and get a real life in person demonstration of a product from an expert is almost too much to ask for! You note down when they are coming to your town next and make a plan to check out their demo for yourself! 

Finally you see the link to their social channels; Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, just to name a few! You check out their channels and find entertaining and informative videos displaying the great range of Show TV products and even a special discount code here and there! 

Your order is placed now and within minutes you have received a personalised email welcoming you to the Show TV family, you aren’t just a number to them, you are a lifelong member of their community, and you know that you won’t have any issues tracking and receiving your order.

Sitting back relaxed and calm, you enjoy the rest of your Sunday afternoon and look forward to your product arriving at your doorstep with love and care from a local Aussie company.

Here at Show TV, our mission is to make this story a reality. We consistently bring the world’s latest trending products to our small corner of the globe to provide Aussies with top of the line products at a competitive price.
